Ansys Lumerical FDTD — Analyzing Results

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

In this course, you will learn how to view simulation results, plot, and export data, how to perform additional post-processing of monitor results using analysis groups, and how to verify the accuracy of simulation results in Ansys Lumerical FDTD.

By the end of this section, you will be able to:

  • Know the difference between Layout mode and Analysis mode
  • Explain what a dataset is
  • Know how to tell which simulation objects contain results, and find out what results are available from those objects
  • Explain the difference between "Results" and "Raw data" returned by monitors
  • Know how to use analysis groups to obtain results from additional post-processing of monitor data
  • Find more details online about the definition of specific monitor results and analysis groups from the object library
  • Use the visualizer to plot desired monitor results
  • Know how to export figures, and export data to a text file, Lumerical data file, or MATLAB
  • Understand the basic design workflow and concept of convergence testing to verify the accuracy of simulation results
